State Radio - Chadwick Stokes


Lace up your running shoes and get your costumes ready because the Calling All Crows 5K is coming back to Northampton, MA for a 6th year on Saturday November 1st. It'll be a full day featuring a fun run / walk 5K, a post-race BBQ and a Chadwick Stokes full-band concert at Pearl Street Nightclub.

Last year's 5K weekend raised $26,000 and that money has helped Calling All Crows run service projects across America that have engaged over 1,400 music fans in service. We know we can go even bigger this year, but we can't do it without your help.

If you've never run a 5K, this is the event for you. The Calling All Crows 5K is no ordinary 5K, it's a costumed fun run / walk through the streets of Northampton. We do some calisthenics over near the EJ Gare Parking Garage, line up at the starting line on Gothic Street and then shut down downtown Northampton with a procession of costumed runners and walkers. The entry fee for the 5K is $25 and includes a post-race BBQ (back by popular demand): REGISTER HERE

We've got some extra perks for participants who want to raise more than $25:

$50 - 1 Ticket to Pearl Street Chadwick Stokes show (including a skip the line pass) + previous incentives (150 available)
$100 - 2 Passes to a Post-Show Meet and Greet with Chadwick Stokes + previous incentives (25 available)
$200 - Pre-5K Pumpkin Carving Party with Chadwick Stokes (the jack-o-lanterns will decorate the stage for the Saturday night show) + previous incentives (20 available)
$500 - Backstage Access Pass + previous incentives (5 available)

It wouldn't be a Calling All Crows Northampton 5K without a concert and that's why Chad and his new band of Pintos will be playing their first show together at Pearl Street Nightclub. This is gonna be one for the history books. The past two years at the Iron Hose have been great, but we wanted to crank up the volume and energy for 2014. This concert is open to everyone, not just 5K participants. Tickets go on sale Friday, but we've got a special presale that begins tomorrow morning (Wednesday August 27th) at 10AM EDT. The presale password is: CHADWICK

We've got a special opportunity for the bands and singer songwriters out there. One lucky band (or solo musician) will get to open for Chad on November 1st in the big 700-person room at Pearl Street Nightclub. The Berkshires and Luke Orion both pulled out all the stops and raised over $13,000 last year for Calling All Crows and got to open for Chad at The Iron Horse. All you have to do is register for the 5K under the name of your band or solo project and start fund raising. The band / musician that raises the most by 11:59PM on Saturday October 25th will get to open the show with a 15 minute set.

Update: Chad's solo set has been cancelled- instead Dispatch will be performing at the Nantucket Music Festival on Saturday August 2nd! The lineup also includes Edward Sharp & the Magnetic Zeroes, Crash, Bruce Hornsby and Guster. Weekend passes are on sale now for $160 - $375, or pick up a day pass for $85 - $200. See the full lineup here, and purchase tickets here!

Chad, Brad Corrigan and Pete Francis will be coming together on July 31st for a Calling All Crows benefit concert on the roof of the Colonnade Hotel Boston.

The all ages event will benefit CAC's efforts with Oxfam to raise awareness and bring humanitarian aid to Syria. There are only 130 tickets so get them fast here.

Chad's going to be out on Nantucket on Sunday August 3rd for the first ever Nantucket Music Festival! It'll be happening on a field overlooking the ocean so it'll be an awesome exprience. Tickets for the festival are on sale now here.

Chad will be in Colorado this weekend for a set at The Meadowgrass Music Festival and a Calling All Crows service project in Colorado Springs. The service project and set both take place on Saturday May 24th, but Chad will be in Denver the night before for a Calling All Crows informational hangout at the Wyncoop Brewery in Denver, CO. Swing by the brewery at 7PM to hear from Chad and learn more about CAC's current initiatives. The event is free, but 21+.

Please RSVP here so that CAC knows how many people to expect.

Chad's friend Darren Buck designed two limited edition posters for the Horse Boy Festival. There were a few extras posters left over so we've added them into the web store. Get one here.
